LIE 2. I DESERVED THIS, I WORKED HARD FOR IT
“I am entitled to what I want!”
“I worked hard for it!”
“I deserve a break!”
These are just some of the most popular lies I often hear from people who worked hard to earn one’s keep. Especially those who were independent and started making a living at a young age.
Kaya nga kung ano man ang pumasok na kita ubos agad.
Kain dito, kain doon.
Bili dito, bili doon.
Shopping dito, shopping doon.
Bakasyon dito, bakasyon doon.
Ubusan agad ng lahi.
Ni hindi man iinit sa loob ng kanyang wallet ang kita.
If we continue to live this kind of lifestyle, believe me, you will never earn enough of money.
Walang natira sa iyong kita.
Walang pa a-kinse, ubos na ang iyong kita.
Wala ka narin pamasahe para makapasok.
Wala ka rin pera kahit ng iyong pangkain.
Ika nga, ubos biyaya.
One day millionaire!
Kaya ang ending, napipilitan na manghiram at mangutang.
Nakikiusap na sa HR na mag-cash advance para lang makapasok.
“Why are you telling me what to do?”
“It’s my money, not yours.”
Yes, you are absolutely right.
Pera mo yan, pinagpaguran mo yan.
Karapatan mo na gawin kung ano ang gusto mo.
No one can dictate and tell you what to do with it.
But having our own hard earned money does not mean to say that we should not be a wise and responsible money manager.
Contrary to popular belief, “Kuripot daw ako.”
In reality, I love to spend but I do so wisely.
Because I believe there is a time and a season for everything.
A time to earn, a time to save.
A time to save, a time to spend.
A time to sacrifice, a time to enjoy.
What I’m trying to say, “IT’S ALL ABOUT TIMING!”
“Ok lang mag-ENJOY na iyong pinaghirapan sa TAMANG PANAHON.”

THINK. REFLECT. APPLY.
- Are you ready to practice delayed gratification?
- Handa ka na ba mag-save now and enjoy later?
- Or handa ka na mag-enjoy now and pulubi later?
